The Domino Effect is now in full swing and Linux is on the path to becoming the single world superpower. Indefatigable, she has already taken hold of Brazil and Russia, and is poised to seize new territory with the next wave of assault; low cost and donated PCs. But even now, aside from full Linux control, Open Source is crumbling the enemy’s resistance from the inside. Mozilla Firefox stands unchallenged as the world’s browser of choice for the liberated. OpenOffice makes inroads into the juicy government sector with fears of data being trapped in dead formats. No ultimatum has been issued, no prisoners will be taken. Now, the world waits for the inevitable and complete annihilation of the old empire. Carpe Diem!
By the way, this is only based on what I have heard. There are computers in Africa, I just haven’t heard that much. Also, I couldn’t be bothered with Mac. They;re probably just going to puff in silvery smoke anyway.
By way of explanation:
Russia: All schools running Linux, Open Source pulic sector by 2010
Brazil: Strong ISO protest against OOXML
China: Made Red Flag
France: Parliament, Police Force
US: Evil Microsoft holds schools to ransom
Australia: Tax department issues taxation pack that does not work under wine (NZ is just a bannana republic probably in the same boat)
More to come at a later point. I’m enjoying this! (Maybe a version with geolocation?)
